Lovewell Reservoir Fishing Report -
|Rating||Size||Baits, Method, Location|
|Walleye||Fair||15-28 inches||The walleye spawn is just beginning and anglers should be able to start catching a few fish along the dam and the south shore near the outlet at night as the fish move in to spawn. During the day fish can often be caught off Walleye Point and the dam in 15-20 feet of water using jig and crawlers or swim baits. Slab spoons along the creek channels will also work this time of year.|
|White Bass/Wipers||Slow|| |
|There have not been any recent reports of white bass or wiper catches. Anglers should try looking for these guys along the creek channels and off the main lake points, specifically Cedar Point and Cabin Point. Slab spoons and Kastmaster fished vertically may be the best baits to catch some fish this time of year.|
|Crappie||Fair||7-13 inches||There are a lot of crappie in the reservoir now, but most of them are one or two year old fish less than 10 inches. There are, however, a fair number of fish between 10 and 13 inches for anglers to target. Fishing around the deep brush piles off Cabin Point, Cedar Point, and the Marina will be good places to look for crappie.|
